The Legend of the AmbUZI Dunks
Every project has a story. This one-of-a-kind pair of Nike AMBUSH Dunks features the most challenging ideas ever attempted by our design team. The results were stunning.
Nike AMBUSH Dunk
These dunks were designed specifically for rap artist Lil Uzi Vert. At the time, his favorite color was pink. He even had his 15 million dollar pink diamond still attached to his forehead.
Made in collaboration with the Tokyo-based fashion label, the AMBUSH x Dunk High ‘Cosmic Fuchsia’ was the perfect shoe for this project.
The high-top features a leather upper in a monochromatic pink finish, highlighted by an extra-tall leather tongue and a molded Nike Swoosh with a tail end that extends past the actual shoe. Dual Nike and Ambush branding adorns the woven tongue tag.
Angel Aura Swooshes
The swoosh is the focal point of this piece. To achieve the vision, we worked along side master jeweler, Hector Gonzalez, by cutting 6 big pieces of Angel Aura Crystal into multiple small shapes, grinding them down into puzzle pieces and setting the stones perfectly into a custom sterling silver cast. Next, we securely fastened each swoosh to the shoe by cold riveted a special 3-part casing directly into the shoe. Final step was to grind down the rivet edges on the inside of the shoe and cover them with a rubber seal. Hector absolutely killed the vision. 100/100
In our signature spaced grid pattern, we finished with:
Indian Pink Glacier Blue
Matching Crystal Hoverboards
This project was commissioned by electric scooter company SWAGTRON.
